I wanna introduce myself. I was born Wed, 10/10/2007. As my fussy Mommy told you, I was 2 weeks earlier.Mommy almost made a history at The Federal Building, Downtown.
It's because she couldn't stop walking and working around, like Daddy said.Daddy and other family had hard time to make her stop.Bet she still wanted me come out on Oct 26th .
Mommy and Daddy had hard time to pick up my 1st name,too.Mommy herself had picked the name months ago,but Daddy didn't like them. Daddy said those names didn't click on his brain.He picked other name,Mommy didn't like it.
Till the unexpected delivery happened,they still didn't have the name.Mommy was worried.Cos the lady from hospital came and picked up the paper.Mommy asked her to come back the next day,cos Mommy still wanted to discuss with Daddy.
Daddy kept wanting name " Anna ".Mommy said it's a common name.Daddy said," it's an american name.It sounds good in my ear." Mommy wanted to put " Baby", would be spelt differently as " Beby " ( Mommy's eldest sister ) or Bebie. But,Daddy rather has " Babie". Mommy said," It can't be happen.If you skip "e", it'll be "pig" in Indonesian.Mommy didn't wanna her daughter be mocked in the future.
An hour before we left the hospital,the lady came back again.Mommy hasn't written any 1st name.Mommy tried to wake Daddy up,but Daddy seemed enjoying me.He put me on top of his chest and we slept. Daddy snored....
Mommy tried to wake him up again and said," Hun,so what it will be ??? Anne or Anna? Or something else??" Daddy just said," Huh????? Yeahhhh.." and then slept again. Mommy gave up and wrote Anna as my 1st name.
When the paper was taken away,Mommy thought she wanted to change the name.Daddy said," it's too late,hun.You wrote Anna there." Mommy blamed Daddy cos Daddy kept wanting Anna.
Then,Mommy thought," Ok.. let Daddy win."
So... Mommy and Daddy had picked up the names.

Meaning of my names :
1st name : ANNA - The meaning of the name Ana is Gracious, Merciful
The origin of the name Ana is Spanish
Info on this name: Form of Anne.
Besides, it's taken from Oma's name, Susiana, and grandma's middle name " Ann ".
2nd name : MEILEE means Beautiful in Chinese ( Mei Li )
it's taken from Mommy's name, Mei and great grandma's ( grandma's mom's ) middle name " Mae ".
Lee is taken from Daddy's middle name.
So... you can combine the name.I have rich names taken from both sides of my family.Exactly like Daddy really wanted,collected names to remember the family root. * What a wonderful idea!!! Even Mommy said she didn't think abt it *.
Anna MeiLee Ries = Gracious beautiful girl
As soon as Mommy knows this, she said to Daddy," I like the names,hun.They do have meanings."
But,still Daddy always teases me and calls me," Haleluya Girl ".He always lifts up my hands and says," Haleluya!!!". He said to Mommy," I should have named her Haleluya ".
Mommy was surprised
Mommy says I have lots of nicknames. Since I've been called Baby Ries before I was born,Mommy still wanna that name. She calls me " MeiLee"
Daddy sometimes calls me " Cutie Pie "
Tony calls me, " Anna Mei " sounds like " Anime "
Others call me " Anna ".
But,mostly I liked to be called " Baby Ries or MeiLee ".
I am grateful for everything Mommy and Daddy had done for me. Mostly Thank Lord that I am here now, could see Mommy and Daddy finally.
I'd like thank you to you all who had supported my mommy during her pregancy , and to those who sent me lots of gifts.
Finally ,nighty nite.I've been drinking milk all day long.Mommy has lots of milk.
God bless you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Baby Ries aka MeiLee
PS: Just found out from Grandma,that Anna was her aunt's name,too!!! And, Lee was taken from Nanny ( Daddy's french grandma, Leena ).
Daddy said I have lots of heritages in my blood.
